David LaGrand Promises Never to Become A Lobbyist

Just saw a press release from David LaGrand. David, who’s running for Michigan State Senate, has pledged to never become a lobbyist if he he’s elected to state office. I worked on his 2006 State Senate campaign, and know him and his family personally. David’s “no lobbying” pledge doesn’t surprise me in the least. In my experience, David LaGrand honestly only wants what’s best for Grand Rapids and Kent County, and becoming a lobbyist after his term(s) are up will do a lot more harm than good for Grand Rapids and West Michigan in general. I wish a lot more politicians would have the same commitment to the better good that David has.

The full press release is available here:

I worked on David’s campaign in 2008. I will not vote for David to be senator. When David sees me he will not look me in the eye. David looks to the ground with a sad face. You see David was a prosecuting attorney for Domestic Violence and knows first hand how Judge Patricia Gardner violates the laws. I have not seen my children in 18 months. Currently CPS is investigating my former spouses home. For someone to sit by and watch what is happening in family court and turns a blind eye like the rest of the politicians, makes David like the rest. Stacey Mathia who is running for Governor has done more for me in the last three months when I met her than the last three years I have know David. David is another politician Michigan does not need!

Why did you work on David’s campaign in 2008 if you didn’t like him? I’m not exactly sure when he stopped working for Kent County as a prosecuting attorney, but it was certainly before 2006.

That said, David LaGrand isn’t Patricia Gardner, and has no direct control over her or her judicial rulings. Lashing out at a third party over the actions of a judge won’t change things.
